Applied onlone via USAJOBS. Computer Based Testing (CBT) invite via email a few days later. If you want to proceed, schedule the CBT online. Tests are 1.) English comprehension, punctuation, spelling, grammar 2.) Long, difficult (to me) spotting items (watches, knives, cell phones, eyc.) in x-ray pics. After clicking I AM FIN8SHED w test and exiting the test riom, you revlceive results by the time you exit building. If you passed, next step is credit check. After that is the background chrck. I have read there is travel to an out of town location for physical test and then, if still in the running. likely travel to alternate airport location from your choice for weeks of training.it is good all this is done but on other hand, long, long process. Oh, well. Good luck to those who apply!!
